Am trying to get info to fix up a C6 to live behind a blown FE.
Car is 1965 Galaxie, 352, Cruise-O, 9", stock now except for headers/exhaust.
If block checks out, will be using 352 for buildup- FT crank, better rods, cleaned up heads.
6-71 blower, 5-8psi boost. Supposedly 500-600hp depending on boost and fuel. Carbureted, not injected.
Built 1960's style, no modern appearing parts post 1967. No tubs or super fat tires.
98% street driven, including long interstate trips- 2% 'strip' time in summer. This was my daily driver.
Was originally thinking of a Clutch C6, for that period "S/FX" vibe, but apparently those are really tempermental and expensive.
Been advised to just build a nice 'period' C6.
So- any advice on how to do this? What parts will live under these conditions. I'm hoping that in the rare instances where I can, and would want to 'nail it', it won't shrapnel itself all over the road.
Read some recent horror stories about some of the "known" trans shops. Man, last thing I need is a brand new, $1000+
Yeah, this must sound like a really weird build, a blown Galaxie, but it's the last 'old style' car it seems I'm gonna have, and I want to do it right.
If anyone has built for such an application, I'm all ears- thanks for your time and consideration.
